  8. Predicting the movement, impacts of microplastic pollution

    Microplastics, which are particles measuring less than 5 mm, are of increasing concern. They not only become more relevant as other plastic marine litter breaks down into tiny particles, they also...
  9. Global warming making oceans more toxic, breaking climate change research shows

    Climate change is predicted to cause a series of maladies for world oceans including heating up, acidification, and the loss of oxygen. A newly published study demonstrates that one ocean consequence...
  10. Rising water temperatures endanger health of coastal ecosystems, study finds

    Increasing water temperatures are responsible for the accumulation of a chemical called nitrite in marine environments throughout the world, a symptom of broader changes in normal ocean biochemical...
  11. Climate change clues revealed by ice sheet collapse

    The rapid decline of ancient ice sheets could help scientists predict the impact of modern-day climate and sea-level change, according to new research.

  12. Forces that threaten sensitive coastlines

    Wind-driven expansion of marsh ponds on the Mississippi River Delta is a significant factor in the loss of crucial land in the Delta region, according to new research. The study found that 17 percent...
  13. The formation of gold deposits in South Africa

    The Witwatersrand basin in South Africa hosts the largest known gold repository on Earth -- but how was it formed? Scientists were able to figure out how parts of the Earth's largest gold deposits...
  14. Coral reefs struggle to keep up with rising seas, leave coastal communities at risk

    In the first ecosystem-wide study of changing sea depths at five large coral reef tracts in Florida, the Caribbean and Hawai'i, researchers found the sea floor is eroding in all five places, and the...

  16. Canary in the kelp forest: Sea creature dissolves in today's warming, acidic waters

    The one-two punch of warming waters and ocean acidification is predisposing some marine animals to dissolving quickly under conditions already occurring off the Northern California coast, according...
  17. In new paper, scientists explain climate change using before/after photographic evide

    A group of scientists offers photographic proof of climate change using images of retreating glaciers.

  19. Models, observations not so far apart on planet's response to greenhouse gas emission

    Recent observations suggest less long-term warming, or climate sensitivity, than the predicted by climate models. But the mismatch is resolved by factoring in that Earth is still in the early stages...
  20. Glacier shape influences susceptibility to thinning

    Researchers have identified glaciers in West Greenland that are most susceptible to thinning in the coming decades by analyzing how they're shaped. The research could help predict how much the...
  21. Migration from sea-level rise could reshape cities inland

    Researchers estimate that approximately 13.1 million people could be displaced by rising ocean waters, with Atlanta, Houston and Phoenix as top destinations for those forced to relocate.

  22. Methane seeps in the Canadian high Arctic

    Cretaceous climate warming led to a significant methane release from the seafloor, indicating potential for similar destabilization of gas hydrates under modern global warming. A field campaign on...
  23. New study emphasizes the relative scarcity of lake water

    What is the volume of water in lakes on Earth? Using a mathematical analysis, researchers now suggest that the mean depth of lakes is 30 per cent lower than previously estimated. Shallower lakes...
  24. With magnetic map, young eels catch a 'free ride' to Europe

    Each year, young European eels make their way from breeding grounds in the Sargasso Sea to coastal and freshwater habitats from North Africa to Scandinavia, where they live for several years before...
  25. Polar glaciers may be home to previously undiscovered carbon cycle

    Microbes in streams flowing on the surface of glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic may represent a previously underestimated source of organic material and be part of an as yet undiscovered 'dynamic...
